I’m not sure what the proper way is to describe The Golden Globes awards show, but I think Oscar‘s red-headed step child evokes the right idea.
The Globes are an all-over-the-place popularity contest, whose outcome is largely based upon who kisses enough Foreign Press ass and/or sends the most expensive gift bags during award show campaigning.
Ricky Gervais never fails to crack me up as he rips the audience – full of Hollywood’s elite – a new one, poking fun of any and all that is sacred. This queen giggled with delight when he told Elton John to sit down as Madonna was a bigger queen than he.
Madonna, of course, turned the tables and stole the show when she basically told Ricky to eff her. (That’s what I got from it, anyway.)
I knew this was a prestigious to-do when Joey from Friends was handed a trophy. Ahem.
I might as well get my gay fashion commentary duties out of the way and reveal my favorite looks of the evening. Angelina Jolie: duh. The woman is flawless; how could she not look good? Madonna looked amazing. Even though I am contractually obligated to say that, I mean it. Reese Witherspoon (my mirror image twin) looked gorge as ush, despite her questionable, just-been-banged, cavewoman hairdo. But, you must have known what you were doing.
Delightfully gay, this year’s winners included Madonna, Jessica Lange, and the lovely Michelle Williams for her performance as Marilyn Monroe.
I suppose that’s it in a nutshell. Guess I’m gonna have to see The Artist.
Michael Troy is a deeply superficial person. Born in the midwest in the ’70s, Michael came to Los Angeles to pursue his bi-polar career path as an actor and artist. 2005 saw the release of Michael’s first published book, Homo-Hero’s Big Book of Fun and Adventure (www.greencandypress.com). Michael has contributed to the Lady Gaga comic book from Bluewater Productions and has his hand in various other upcoming projects. Michael has performed stand-up comedy at all of the major comedy clubs in Los Angeles and is making his triumphant return to the main stage of The Comedy Store in September. Michael offers an off-beat sense of humor as the star of such youtube cult classics As The Gays on Film (www.youtube.com/fullfrontaltv), A Minute With Margot, a loving tribute to Superman legend Margot Kidder (http://www.youtube.com/user/rktcommander), and currently hosts a vlog style series Lethally Blonde over at www.monsterburg.com. Sitting alongside industry heavyweight Phil Jimenez at the “Divas and Lassoes” panel for the 2010 San Diego comic-con, Michael maintains and cherishes his “underground” status. A staunch believer in Blonde Ambition, Michael hopes his new comic about shallow blonde super heroes in Los Angeles, The Blonde Squad, will set the world on fire (or at least brighten it a bit).
